We have no control over the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, purposes and retention periods. Since the plug-in provider carries out the data collection, in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the gray box via the security settings of your browser.

If you do not want to associate with your profile with the plug-in provider, you must log out before activating the button.
